Lou started filling in as a guest host on LostChatter back during season 5 of the show and soon became a regular host. He then became a regular host on the AppChatter show in 2010. With the relaunch of the RandomChatter network in 2011 Lou’s role evolved to include editing and producing shows (yes, basically grunt work).
Lou’s somewhat random background makes him a good fit with the RandomChatter network. What’s that old saying, “jack of all trades, master of none”? Well, there you go. When he’s not at the computer, he’s usually on his mountain bike or behind his camera. Lou’s completest nature (let’s not mince words and call it what it really is—OCD) forces him to watch all episodes of a TV series once started, even when it’s not very good.

Having grown up on comics, television and film, “Jovial” Jay feels destined to host podcast related to the union of these nerdy pursuits. He made his first appearance on the network as a guest on LostChatter, and eventually graduated to become a co-host of RandomChatter.
Among his other pursuits he dabbles in database production and web design for fun, administrates and edits stories at the two largest Star Wars fan sites on the ‘net (Rebelscum.com, TheForce.net) and maintains a list of every film and television property that was ever created from Comic Books over at RogueDesigner.net.
Jay also co-hosts Jedi Journals over at the ForceCast Network.

Josh is a teacher…part time. Hanging around kids at school since 1997 has proven that he never really matured past the 5th grade (which he now teaches). He was a caricature artist for 24 years at “The World’s Most Exciting Restaurant”, Casa Bonita (see South Park, season 7 episode 11)
In 2013 he fulfilled a dream of illustrating children’s books. Something he hopes to continue long into the future. And sometimes he dabbles in video editing, podcasting, parenting, and collecting everything ever made, with the words “Star” and “Wars” on it.
Josh also co-hosts Techno-Retro Dads over at the Shotglass Digital network.
Shows: The ChordCast
Hello! My name is Joelle Alexander, and I co-host with Chris on the ChordCast! I’m a junior marketing major at the great Boise State University. I love horses, music, and going to shows (of both kinds!). My horse is named Diablo, and he’s the sun to my sky. There’s a good chance that if I’m not riding, I’m at a rock show. My music taste stretches from Frank Sinatra to Beartooth to Owl City and back to Silverstein. Warped Tour is my summer equivalent of Christmas, and I have traveled over 30,000 miles total for concerts. Swing by my Twitter, Instagram, or Snapchat and say hi! All of my handles are xJoelleMae. See you around at a show, and stay rad!

Meesa honored to be taking on dissa heavy burden. Meesa accept this with moi, moi humility and… [scuffle ensues] Um… sorry folks. Lou apparently didn’t appreciate my acceptance speech.
Anyhow, a bit about me…
I live in central New York with my wife, niece, and two dogs. I’m a life-long Star Wars fan and an eager (although often delayed) consumer of Star Wars novels, both EU and current, and occasionally venture into Star Wars comics. I love Star Wars LEGO and the Black Series figures, if only I had more room for them! I’m also a big fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, except Ant Man, who is completely unnecessary.

Andrea was born in Puerto Ordaz, Venezuela, and is now happily living in Ontario, Canada. She is an all year round Education Coordinator for grades 7-12 and a Math, English, Chemistry and Biology teacher!
When she is not teaching the ways of the Force to the bright minds of tomorrow, she can be found doing a million things such as writing, gaming, reading, hiking, or watching movies/TV-shows! A good way to summarize everything she loves, without having a list, is with a fun fact: she has a Miniature Schnauzer named Luke Skywalker, had a Chameleon named Spock, and had a Hedgehog named Sonic!
Andrea loves interacting with the world and talking about anything and everything related to movies/TV-shows so follow her on Twitter at: @KatzBearz!

Joel is a dual Canadian/U.S. citizen currently living in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. His favourite/favorite pastime is pointing out the idiocy of identity constructs at the expense of the common human existential experience. He gets highly emotional about his stoicism due from spending too much time at university deconstructing intellectual concepts. His major claim to fame is being an original Star Wars Fan Club member after his mother signed him up in 1978. When the stars are aligned, he surfaces on Twitter at: @Joel_Welch.

I am a Burbank, California native, bibliophile, cook, Aikidoka, gamer and incurable geek. When I’m not working my “day job”, I can usually be found throwing people across a room or gaming or with my nose in a book.
I also have an unhealthy obsession with Star Wars, Star Trek, Stargate… ok, ok! I’m obsessed with most things Sci-Fi and/or fantasy. Also Douglas Adams, vampires, dragons, vikings, swords… You get the general idea.
